First, let me swear on whatever you find worthy of swearing upon that I have not ever clicked on my own blog link after doing a search for ’11/22/63 art.’ (Proof: it isn’t purple in my browser!) I only ever looked because I kept seeing it pop up in my stats, along with ‘Siamese cat drawing.’ So, being curious, I wanted to see where I ranked. The last time I looked, I ranked just below the official Stephen King website. Today, I rank above it.
I actually feel a bit ill seeing this. It scares me. What if King finds me? I might have my first-ever panic attack… and then invite him to Ireland to drive around Mayo on a rented Harley with me (on my own bike, of course). I know better than to ask him to the pub.
What if the publisher sees it, or the person who did the book jacket, and says I’ve infringed on copyright by reproducing the first page? I want to do more of these, and I even started one for ‘IT’ but the movie’s images kept getting in my way. I’ll have to read it again (oh darn, the hardship) and find a good image to use. So right now my idea is to do a couple more, then go ask the publisher if I’m in trouble and need to stop…
yep, the Universe has a way of ganging up on us if we can’t quite figure things out our own damn selves!
enjoy your art, Spiders!
Haha, thanks! I’m not sure if I’m inspired, or terrified!
You haven’t been here quite long enough. Remember the Irish maxim – it’s easier to apologise than ask permission….
Hahah! But I’m scared of big bad US publishing companies that could squash me like a buuuuug.
Life goal achieved! 😉
Oh, not yet – but if I DO get to meet the man himself, that is a life goal. I wouldn’t be happy with 10 seconds at a book signing, I really would like to have a long chat. If I didn’t already have a great dad, and I could choose my own, I’d pick King! I’m about the right age to be one of his kids too 🙂 So I guess I think about him in an odd way – more like a role model I haven’t met than a ‘famous person.’ Probably since I’ve read his work for over 30 years now!
Well, who knows he’ll read your blog and comment!
I can’t wait for Stephen King to comment on your blog! Perhaps he’ll use some of your original artwork for his next book cover. Way to go!
Thanks! I probably would scream, pee myself, and scare the dog half to death. Either that or forget to breathe.
